Tom O'Connor Biography

One of the most popular TV faces of the 70s and 80s, Tom O’Connor is a British entertainment legend. Presenter of such iconic shows as Name That Tune, Cross Wits and Gambit, amongst many others, Tom is a household name.

Throughout his original career as a teacher, Tom worked in the classroom during the day and as an entertainer in clubs at night. It soon became evident what his true calling was, and he said goodbye to his pupils and stepped into the limelight.
